Weston Hospicecare has received a generous stock donation from Lidl for the Mendip Challenge event on 3 June.

Lidl distribution centre, located near junction 21 of the M5, donated 450 two litre bottles of water, along with chocolate bars and other snacks.

James Stroud, the Warehouse Team Manager at Lidl’s regional depot in Weston, said: “We work with many charities in and around the South West area and we feel we are part of the community with two stores and the regional distribution centre currently in Weston-super-Mare.

“We are aware of the great work Weston Hospicecare does in the community, so being part of fundraising initiatives gives us great pride.

The donation has been gratefully received by the hospice and it will allow the funds, intended to organise refreshments, to be added to the final total figure raised.

Kelsey Dehaney, the event organiser, said: “I would like to say a massive thank you to Lidl’s Weston based distribution centre on behalf of Weston Hospicecare for their very generous donation.

“This will help us keep the costs of running the event down, meaning more funds raised to support patient care that we provide.

“There is still time to register for the event for anyone who would like to take part, we hope to see as many members community out supporting us, the fundraisers and all the volunteers on 3 June.”

If you are interested in taking part you can still register. There is a 10-mile, 20-mile and 30-mile route available and the deadline to sign up is Sunday 27 May. If you are interested please click here to register.

    Reclaim Gift Aid

    Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Weston Hospicecare to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Weston Hospicecare we can claim back 25p from the government.

    By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Weston Hospicecare to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Weston Hospicecare will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

    What is Gift Aid?

    Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Weston Hospicecare receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

    All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

    The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
